Resting, Worshiping, and Feasting
Today’s reading: Leviticus 21:1-23:25
All of our time belongs to God. He has the right to require that we use it as He specifies. But He does not drive us relentlessly as we, workaholics, drive ourselves. While these Old Testament feasts have been fulfilled in Christ, the principle remains that we are to take time to rest and celebrate. See how God loves His people and tenderly looks out for their best.
